    Could my temp be a factor in this? I notice during the day it is around 80-82 (looking at the temp this exact moment it says about 82). I live on the ground level and have the A/C set at 74 so the apartment stays pretty cool. I know I will be needing a fan once I get my MH setup tho.....

    good lighting (yup MH with a nice color range 10K) will help coral growth. good water parameters and good circulation might help against the dreaded brown slime you are having (hopefully).

    Water changes? Best bet. Something in your water is making it thrive. Find out!

    do you dose with kalkwasser? Might try a strong injection into your system and buffer your PH up to the high end.

    You should try to siphon the slime off...this might have already been stated though o_O
